It says a lot about just how surreal this American election cycle has become that they couldn't even have a 9/11 commemoration without one of the candidates grabbing all the headlines.
Of course, the fact that the headlines were all generated for the wrong reasons, and centered around footage of an obviously collapsing candidate being bundled into a people carrier, has raised the one question Democrats have been both dreading and dismissing - is Hillary Clinton physically incapable of doing the job she's applying for?
As it happens, fainting is not unheard of among US presidents.
